Is there a more pathetic journalist on the planet than Jim Acosta? Trick question. Acosta isn’t a journalist. He’s not a reporter. Shoot, he’s barely even a political figure. The guy is just a clown. If you’ve ever seen one of his grandstanding performances at a White House press briefing you know that.
The media has been pretending to be outraged lately over the fact that children are being separated from their parents at the border which started during the Obama years. Liberals seem to want us to just let everyone go who is caught crossing the border illegally and they clearly don’t seem to understand the fact that children and parents are separated every day in this country when people are arrested for any crime.
It’s just the latest example of the left trying to shame conservatives for believing in the rule of law. Don’t want to get split up from your kids? Don’t break federal law and come to a country to live without permission. Not complicated.
Jim Acosta showed up to the White House today (he’s still allowed in for some reason) and embarrassed himself yet again which resulted in a beat down from Sarah Sanders.
Here’s the exchange.
From The Daily Caller:
Acosta started the tense moment by referencing WH policy on separating illegal immigrant children from their parents, asking Sanders, “Where does it say in the Bible that it’s moral to take children away from their mothers?”
Sanders shot back that it is “very biblical” to enforce the law.
“That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the Bible,” she said.
Acosta asked Sanders to talk specifically about comments made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sanders told him she hadn’t yet seen the comments.
“I know it’s hard for you to understand even short sentences, I guess, but, and please don’t take my words out of context but the separation of illegal alien families is the product of the same legal loopholes that Democrats refuse to close,” Sanders said as reporters laughed, guffawed and complained about her jab at Acosta’s intelligence.
Here’s the clip.
It might not have been a good idea to cite the Bible since liberals have such a hard time understanding and respecting that book but she’s absolutely right. It’s in the Bible. Follow the law.
Another pathetic performance from Jimmy.
